It is a great pity that Deborah Orr did not live to see her first book published. Finished just months before her untimely death in October last year, Motherwell has already amassed great critical acclaim, a memoir that recounts her childhood in the 70’s Lanarkshire town of Motherwell – ‘the place where I failed to get to know my mother very well at all’. The razor-sharp journalist will be remembered in this talk, Motherwell: Memoirs, Mothers and Remembering Deborah Orr hosted by Dolly Alderton and with guests Linda Grant, Louisa Young, Suzanne Moore in association with Waterstones at St James’ Church, Piccadilly. Book tickets ahead.
